Well well, over a couple of weeks Kangana Ranaut has stirred up the mills of controversies. And we know the reason why! Yes, I am talking about the recent Manikarnika controversy. For those who don’t know, Kangana is now heading her upcoming project Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi. Don’t be so shocked, it is not the first time that Bollywood’s “queen” has made a buzz because of her issues with the directors. Take a look at the past and you’ll be amazed. From Vishal Bhardwaj in Rangoon to Hansal Mehta in Simran, trust me, the diva has had her share of experiences. Now it seems that post Manikarnika controversy, director Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari wants no panga with Kangana Ranaut!
Fear not, it’s not like Ashwiny is not going to cast Kangana in her movie. But if media reports are considered to be true, then Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari is being cautious by drawing a ‘no interference’ contract with the Tanu Weds Manu star for her upcoming flick Panga!
A little birdie mentioned that:
“Ashwini has had many meetings with Kangana and they’ve gotten along really well. Ashwini is sure she will make a fabulous film with Kangana. But the repeated allegation of interference in the director’s work, first with Vishal Bhardwaj on Rangoon, then Hansal Mehta in Simran and now Krissh with Manikarnika, has put Ashwini on her guard.”
However, another media report suggests that the little birdie is wrong. Director Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari cleared the air by saying that the news about the contract is false. She gave this information in a heartfelt note about the movie. Here’s an extract:
“I request everyone not to be judgemental and together allow me to breathe the air of oneness like the support and love you have given me for my previous films. The news which has been floating around is false and baseless which should not be allowed to grow.”
Kangana’s sister Rangoli Chandel shared the entire note on her official Twitter handle:
All the people who are belittling and shaming a Young girl for taking difficult time head on should learn lessons of humanity from a woman like @Ashwinyiyer …. Kangana deserves directors like her …. cheers to girls standing for girls 😘😘🤗🤗♥️♥️ pic.twitter.com/ibGoJE24Rt

Undeniably, Kangana Ranaut has evolved as one of the most versatile actors of the Bollywood industry. Pick any of her films and see it with your own eyes. For instance, the diva garnered a lot of acclaim for her performance in the movie Queen.
And, who can forget her performance in the film Tanu Weds Manu and it’s sequel.
On the other hand, Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari is no less than a pro herself, when it comes to direction. So, you get where this is going right? Seriously now, I am looking forward to the collaboration already.
I think that it is going to be one of the most awaited collaborations of all times. What do you think?
